Supporting the move up to secondary school
During 2019 Kidscape will be piloting the delivery of RISE workshops in schools. These are aimed at young people in Year 6 moving up to secondary school but can also be adapted to meet the needs of a new Year 7 group, supporting them to manage their transition.
About the workshop
Through taking part in a RISE workshop a child will be supported to:
- Grow in confidence
- Understand how to manage change
- Make new friends
- Deal with difficult situations
- Stand strong against bullying
- Know how to speak up and get help
Workshops are two hours in length and designed for groups of up to 15 young people and delivered in a classroom setting, with a combination of scenarios, role plays and discussions.
Teachers/TAs are expected to support the facilitator with classroom management and certain activities where needed.
